ABB Ventyx
One of the best solutions in the market with an easy-to-use system. This is very useful when the ABB system is existing, new, or existing; All ABB systems can be integrated using this instead of going to a third-party vendor, which might have interface issues.

Our clients have not complained about it and seems to be well suited to the manufacturing sector where we work, but for small mom and pop shop it's a bit much, we would recommend a more simple product to those clients

Nexgen is much more widely use and required less upfront investment in training. it was also less costly than Upkeep. The marketing was about the same for both, but it seemed like a simple decision as one of our key people had used nexgen previously and had good things to say about it
